A Fine Line Between Reporter and Publicist.

Last night, The Washington Post posted a very important story:

Gingrich says he's considering presidential run

In other news, I, too, am considering a presidential run.

Newt Gingrich's Walter Mitty campaign fantasies are, well, just that. The former Speaker pretends to "consider" tossing his hat in the ring whenever he's got a book to sell. These trial balloons are, as a wise man once wrote, "as perennial as the grass."

In its defense, The Post, which ran an AP story, isn't the only offender. Outlets of all stripes get taken in.
